Yes , for sure. A haynes manual is a must have for anyone who wants to do work on their own car. It will save you hours of frustration and unnecessary work. WELL worth the cost.
When you say the booster is going out , are you sure ?
They work of a vacumme hose from the engine , if that hose is leaking , or the little valve where it goes into the booster is no good , than you might think the booster is bad when it is good.
In general terms either the booster is good , or it is bad and you have to stand on the pedal to get any brakes.
If you post more info about what your brakes are doing , or not doing , someone might give you a different solution / diagnosis.

Can I use a 97 GMC Jimmy brake booster to replace a 98 GMC Jimmy brake booster? I'm buying a vehicle and need this part but found a 97 way cheaper than the 98 and they look the same! TIA

I don't if that differs between manufacturers? I looked at for your brake booster, cardone part for your vehicle lists 97--2005 for your vehicle, brake booster.
If all the hook-ups are the same as the one your looking at, I don't know why it wouldn't work?
You know how it is, I see nothing from here.

I have a 1998 GMC yukon and the problem is that

The Master Booster is located in the Engine compartment. You shouldn't have to touch anything under your dash at all. The master comes unbolted, you slide it out slightly to disconnect and hardware that may be connected and then remove it. GMC sometimes add connectors to the linking parts between the brake pedal and Booster but they can be disconnected and should be disconnected from the engine side of the firewall. I recommend you get the Haynes repair manual on your vehicle before continuing that repair.

Buy a repair manual from a auto parts store. Haynes manuals give you a good walk through on how to disassemble the dash. 24065 is the Haynes manual you will need for your truck.

Service brake booster display

Your brake booster is the heart of your power brakes. It runs off a vacuum from the intake to booster. Your brakes will still work as long as they have fluid. They'll just get stiff. It probably means you need a new one
